CHICAGO – A woman is suing a youth soccer league, alleging she was injured at a youth soccer game in Berwyn when a ball struck her in the face.
Latasha Young filed a complaint on Dec. 14 in Cook County Circuit Court against FC United Premier LLC, PSG Soccer Inc., SMP Teams LLC and GOL Soccer Foundation, alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, on Dec. 18, 2016, the plaintiff was in the stands at a Berwyn school attending a youth soccer game and was struck in the face by a kicked ball as it entered the seating area. The suit states the school was leased by the defendants for the use of soccer-related activities.
The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to take steps to protect spectators from the risk of serious injuries, failed to warn spectators of foreseeable dangers, and failed to install protective netting or other protective barrier.
The plaintiff seeks judgment of more than $50,000 plus costs of litigation. She is represented by Daniel Breen of Breen Goril Law in Chicago.
